The Holmen Area Rotary Club members donated and shopped to provide shelter clients a Thanksgiving meal. 10 families sponsored by New Horizons will receive a bag containing the ingredients to create a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers are a shelter for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence. Their mission is to  provide safety and services to adults and families who have experienced domestic and sexual abuse so that they can make decisions about their lives in a supportive, nonjudgmental and empowering atmosphere. They answered over 2100 calls to their crisis hot line and sheltered almost 200 men, women and children with almost 11,000 nights of shelter in 2016. Providing these Thanksgiving meals allows some of the displaced to feel a small sense of normalcy. Along with the meals, the Rotary Club also provided a box of miscellaneous individual toiletries and gift cards.
